Shipping

In-house shipping may be offered to buyer's as a courtesy, which includes in-house packing, shipping and insurance, unless otherwise noted in the lot description.
Standard shipping policy is: purchases must be paid in full before any packing/shipping will be completed. Customers are required to make two (2) separate payments, one for payment of item(s) and one for shipping.
The buyer is responsible for all costs incurred for shipping. If shipping is to be out sourced, a list of suggested shippers is provided below. Regardless of shipping method, our auction house must have received cleared funds to release property to the shipper.
We will not be held responsible for choosing a shipper in the event of any act and/or omissions in packing. We do not assume responsibility for damages.
Regarding in-house shipping, the minimum handling charge is $25 plus packing and shipping materials, insurance and the actual cost of shipping. We handle and package items in the order of payment receipt. Once our accounting department has notified our shipping department that full purchase payment has been made, our shipping department will contact you regarding all shipping costs. Successful bidders are responsible for the collection / shipment of their purchase within fourteen (14) days after the end of the auction. Failure to do so will incur a storage fee of twenty-five ($25) per item per week. Kensington Estate Auctions is not responsible for any loss or damage to property left for more than 14 days after sale.
Shipping charges are non-refundable.
The buyer may choose to contact a shipper listed below. In addition, the buyers may also choose their own shipper. In either case the buyer must complete auction payment to Kensington Estate Auctions in full before items are released to shippers. Kensington Estate Auctions will not obtain multiple quotes or negotiate between shippers on the buyer's behalf. Kensington Estate Auctions will be provided signed authorization for release of the property that states your name, sale date, lot number and choice of shipper.
If a loss or damage should occur during shipping, it is incumbent upon the buyer to file for recovery of any losses incurred. Under no circumstance can the claim exceed the hammer price (not including the buyer's premium). In the event of damage during shipping, the buyer must notify Kensington Estate Auctions within 7 (seven) business days of receipt of item. The buyer must provide Kensington Estate Auctions with detailed photographs of the damaged item as well as detailed photographs of any damaged packaging. These photographs must be emailed to Kensington Estate Auctions within one week of the receipt of the item in order for a claim to be filed. All packing materials must be saved. This in no way guarantees return of funds, which is dependent on the decision of shipper.
